political disaster. without roberts, a george w. bush appointee himself, the landmark obama accomplishment would have been struck down by the court's conservatives. and the president's opponents would have been handed a battering ram for the coming campaign. any observer could see that a weight had been lifted off the president's shoulders. >> whatever the politics, today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives will be more secure because of this law and the supreme court's decision to uphold it. >> what an unusual pairing. barack obama, the liberal president, progressive president, and chief justice john roberts. they will be joined together in history. >> yeah. and i think you couldn't see this coming. because if you go back to the oral argument, it sure did seem like a majority. court was not prepared to uphold the law. and now we know why. because a majority. court also said that the government's central theory, which you could do this under the commerce clause, was not constitutional. instead, it was the government's fallback that satched the day. and dur
that no one would have expected, jeef justice john roberts, who was appointed by president george w. bush to lead this court in a more conservative direction, initially was poised to strike down the key part of the health care law, but then, he changed his mind and the outcome of this entire case. >> cbs news, and its legal correspondent jan crawford, breaking the story earlier this week that chief justice john roberts originally decided with conservatives about the obama care mandate. while writing the decision changed his mind and the rest, as they say, is history. jim, the question is, how did cbs get that info and was it news for coverage of the court going forward? >> jan is a very good reporter and we assume that she got it from another justice. she had a lot of detail about anthony kennedy, you know, apparently spending a month trying to get roberts on this decision, it opens up a whole n new-- where to come from and information and including the courts now. >> it does seem strange, judy, the supreme court has been sort of a bastion of secrecy up until now. >> it has been and you c
and the presidency. to be fair, you have to go back to 2008 when george w. bush was the president of the united states in order to find one, but here it is. >> next time you hear politicians say he or she will bring down oil prices, understand it's complete bs. if they want lower prices, cut back. sell those suvs, ride a bike when you can. if every one of us bought 10% less gasoline, prices would fall fast. >> well, happy fourth of july, republicans. next time you want to use gas prices as a political tool, make sure you listen to your friend bill o'reilly because he's always looking out for you. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. will republicans ever stop using gas prices as a political ploy? text a for yes, text b for no, to 622639. we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm joined tonight by a man who has answered, commissioner of the commodity futures trading commission. we have been down this road, but i like to remind them how this all works. explain the main reason gas prices have dropped 60 cents in the last three months. what's going on? >> hey, ed. we have

. chief justice john roberts, who was appointed by president george w. bush to lead this court in a more conservative direction initially was poised to strike down the key part of the health care law. but then he changed his mind and the outcome of this entire case. after oral arguments in the landmark case, sources tell cbs news roberts agreed with the court's four conservative justices that the heart of the law, the individual mandate that requires all americans to buy health insurance, was unconstitutional. but as roberts set out to write the court's majority opinion-- according to two sources with specific knowledge of the deliberations-- his views began to change. he forged an alliance with the court's four liberal justices and crafted a decision upholding the law under congress's power to levy taxes. that argument had gotten little attention and was uniformly rejected in the lower court. roberts then withstood a month-long desperate campaign by the conservatives led by justice anthony kennedy to bring him back. but roberts did not budge. on the last day of the court's term, after r
on taxation seems to be politically unique. we've had wealthy republican presidents before george h.w. bush, wealthy family, but their personal wealth was never perceived to be part of their actual governing decisions. bush had republican philosophy about taxation. you saw very rich democrats who actually had a nonself-interested tax policies. the fact that these policies are all to romney's only self-interest is the peculiar part of the politics. >> i think it's that. i don't think it's his wealth that's the problem. i think it's the fact that he's paying a lower income tax rate than the lowest marginal income tax rate. he has all these offshore accounts, swiss bank accounts, cayman islands and bahamas and there's a terrible contrast he has with his father who was exactly the opposite. who was the model of transparency releasing 12 years of income taxes saying that it would be -- it could be a fluke if you only released one year. paul krugman was writing today that at the time they were reporting george romney was going out of his way to not take advantage of the loopholes in the tax syste
? >> reporter: 20 years ago, incumbent president george h.w. bush apologized after referring to the clinton-gore ticket as the two bozos. he told me he was conjuring the voice of democrats who don't take romney serious enough and added he regards romney as formidable candidate. >> john: there was an unusual fundraising pitch by the president today. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: he was aboard air force one friday night returning to the capital. he used a special phone that the campaign pays for to speak to group of prior donors. the truth is that the early money is more valuable than late money the president told the donors. it's fair to say if we wait to the last minute we could be in for a rude surprise. "i have gray hair," he added. "people are disappointed because they had a vision of change happening immediately and turns out it's hard." one of the callers recorded the conversation. >> john: we are hearing about travel arrangements for romney? >> he was slated to attend the summer olympics in london. we have confirmed that he plans to visit israel this summer for the sec
it earlier like mark levin asking whether george w. bush managed to nominate someone who is much more liberal than the conservative supporters believed. megyn: in the wake of last week's healthcare decision america's psychiatrist dr. keith ablow is calling the president's law a virus that could actually wind up making people sick, at least in their mindset. dr. ablow joins me now. in addition to being a psychiatrist he's a member of our fox news medical a team. rel come back to the praopl. i thought your column was interesting. you talked about how there are obviously going to be economic costs to this law but you believe they pale in comparison to the cost to the american mindset. how so? >> absolutely. megyn, money is a metaphor. when you start acting, when the government begins to act as parent to its citizens as children, and says, we are going to earmark your after-tax dollars. i know this has been called a tax, but it's earmarking the money you take home, that you must spend it on certain things, that means literally that you don't know whether any of your money is really yours. today i
george w. bush a second term in 2004, but, if the tide goes out on the economy, there is enough fluidity, there is enough fluidity there are enough moderate voters and swing voters you could see potentially a big romney victory if in fact the economy is in the dumps. certainly you could see a big swing for romney. megyn: now they're talking about yet another round of quantitative easing which is basically fire up the money printer. we need more dough to easingis quantitatively. does that have any meaningful impact on that chart we saw between now and november? does that in any way put points on the board for barack obama, the democratic party, the american people? >> well, first we should point out they don't even bother to print money anymore. they conjure it digitally. it is made into being as pixels. megyn: getting so ex-haas tiff for the guy in the back. >> but, yes, democrats hope that if the news is bad enough and bernanke, chairman bernanke can convince the other members of the federal reserve to go along with another splurp of federal reserve money to free up lending that it will
would simply say this to you, i wouldn't agree with hardly anything he did. but george w. bush was my president. ronald reagan was my president. i'm just saddened by the fact that we somehow reached point in this country for whatever reason, we don't have one president that represents all of us. we should get beyond all off that rhetoric and beyond this bill and talk about what really matters in this country which is jobs as you said. >> being amazed how much foxx and i have in common. i think the thing that bothers me about what she said is this notion of freedom. in other words, my idea is freedom of speech, freedom of religion. it's not the freedom to have healthcare. the problem i look at it from a responsibility point of view which is what the republicans often talk about. monday, it's not fair if you will, that people not take care responsibility for their own lives. why should so. of us be paying these large premiums and bills for people who don't decide to have health insurance? i also think that the other thing you said that i don't agree with, there are a lot of people out
. eleanor bush no, relation to george w. bush. at cranbrook school in michigan and runs the teen republican club. i wanted to sec rise her -- recognize her and thank her for her efforts. >> greg: she is taller than you. >> kimberly: i had five-inch heals on. >> bob: she will change. freddie i want to touch on fireworks they were never able to figure out what happened when you got a dud. you could never return it to the fireworks stand. last month, 6200 residents in alaska got hopes up. hoax that taco bell was going to arrive but it was a hoax. they were let down, devastated. taco bell is a great american, they sent -- 10,00,000 durry toe loc -- doritos loco tacos to make them. that makes america great. about pie wall street if you gave them 10,000 years and all tin gredients they couldn't make one taco. >> bob: thanks, greg. >> eric: quickly, you know what? how old was she? >> dana: 17. eleanor bush is 17. >> eric: who sales 17? >> eric: come back. come back to republicans. >> bob: two more one more thing. i want to thank greta van susteren who sent us a nice note about the fact that this s
possible by the chief justice john roberts appointed by george w. bush, and believed up until recently to be a conservative. there's a fascinating piece by cbs news sort of unwinding how this came to be in it. in it, i'm quoting now, roberts pays attention to media coverage. he's sensitive to how the court is perceived by the public. do you think it's possible that after reading weeks of "new york times" editorials attacking him preemptively for ruling against obamacare, chief justice roberts decided to rule it constitutional? >> i think that's possible, tucker. i don't know the guy. it certainly is possible. but, you know, i look at that decision, and as much as i hate it with every fiber of my being, because it's an immoral, horrible, euthanasia law. i believe fundamentally when he said i'm affirming the individual mandate, he gave us each of us an individual mandate to defeat barack obama, retake the senate, and repeal this law. he basically said, i'm not going to do your job for you. go out in the streets, win this election, do it like we do it in a democracy, and then you repeal t
of the leadership qualities that we want in a president. george w. bush whom we rarely invoke for anything positive, at least had a clarity of thought so people said we know what he thinks. and the rap on john kerry in '04 was the flip-flopping. >> romney is just following -- the weird thing is he's still having to play so much to his base. his entire base had the same 180 on roberts as well. so he's gotta go out there and he still for some reason, has not solidified his base. you cannot continue to talk to the tea party and the rest of america at the same time and not look crazy to one of them. >> right. >> you have to get to the point where you're above these kind of petty attacks on supreme court justice and say i don't agree with the decision but i'm not going to go attack john roberts because it is beneath me. he's sitting on the supreme court. the chief justice of the united states. but he's still stuck in those kinds of arguments and still playing to bill kristol the editorial page. here we are heading into july and
these numbers and phenomenon? >> not really. he does well among democrats just like george w. bush did among republicans but he's long since lost the republicans. >> scott. thank you very much. >>> thank you. >>> moving jobs out as high taxes move in. why lawmakers in our nation's capital should pay close attention to what's going on in the big apple. . with better car replacement, if your car is totaled, we give you the mone for a car one model year newer. liberty mutual auto insurance. >> neil: you think high taxes don't drive away jobs? look what's happening to thousands of wall street jobs. they're leaving new york fast. tom is a c.e.o. just down on wall street and says lawmakers everywhere better learn. you reported this before, seen it firsthand, that a lot of midlevel type positions are losing the city. >> this is a less to washington state and local governments. people out there won't spend money they don't have to stay in a state that costs too much and the burden is on the company of staying if business or going out of business so they go to low-cost areas where they can afford to
with the exception of ron paul, all came forward and said let's do exactly what george w. bush did and call it something different. and it seems to me the republican party at this point are only good at two things redistribution of wealth to the top 2% and convincing social conservatives that this is a good thing. suzannea is calling us from illinois. good morning. >> hi. i have advise for david axelrod. i live in illinois and i have had robo calls saying terrible things about the president. if my son would have answered the phone, you know, he loves the president. they talk about it in school. my 9-year-old school -- >> can i ask what terrible things the robo calls were saying? >> i have had normal things before, but this is like obama is a traitor, he's coming to get you. and i blame the republican party for getting calls like that. i think it's public harassment. >> i agree. but citizens united you are going to see a lot more of that especially in the swing states. and if mitt romney gets to have donald trump doing robo calls for him, then we get to call it what it i
president george w. bush and first lady laura bush starting off the second day in zambia at church. they went right to work after the service painting the inside of the health center they're renovating, the center will diagnose and treat women for cervical cancer and coffee to fight skin cancer? a study by researchers at brigham and women's hospital found out of 113,000 people, those who drank three or more cups a day had a 20% lower risk of the most common type of skin cancer. they believe that caffeine might kill off damaged skin cells. brian? >> all right, lie about being a police officer? you probably are going to go to jail. but lie about being a soldier? and the supreme court says that's ok. that's just free speech. so what about the soldiers who fight for our country think about that? joing is one of those guys who serves in the u.s. army national guard. so pete, it's ok for people to say i was in the army. i had two or three tours. i missed a few i.e.d.'s by a millimeter and that's now ok, correct? >> well, it's never ok and you talk to any vet across the board and when t
to make the argument that mitt romney's foreign policy as a return to george w. bush. he left office very unpopular with respect to his foreign policy. obama will argue that he inherited a mess, at a less secure world, and he has made it more secure. mitt romney is advocating the same policies as george w. bush and will try to paint them as being reckless, too quick to use force, and the like. one more direct line of attack that was tried already was mitt romney did make some statement saying that he did not think we should galavant the world and spent billions of dollars trying to find one person. he criticized obama's statement that he would go inside pakistan after bin laden. obama will try to track that out to show that mitt romney is not tough on terrorism. i think he will try to make the argument that mitt romney is trapped in the past and maybe making -- his statements that russia is our number one geopolitical cell was mocked by a lot of people in the foreign- policy establishment, including a lot of republicans. the arms control agreement was -- had very strong bipartisan support
out in 2000 and 2004, i think george w. bush in 2000, would -- early in the campaign it seems to me, i remember him going to one inner city stop after another inner city stop and we were all scratching our heads why are they doing it, they weren't doing it to win votes in the inner city, they were doing it to win votes in the philadelphia suburbs. >> because in the philadelphia suburbs they like a compassionate conservative which mitt romney has proved he's not this campaign. >> has he proven that? >> those primaries, i -- i think did it. but on the theory that 90% of life is showing up, it was a good thing to go. a good thing he went. he had the opportunity to show the nonindependent voter that he wasn't going to go all wobbly. the people he's still going to protect are people like him. and he -- right there in the lion's den he said i'm not going to protect you. >> jon meacham, you talked about historical trends, we both talked about how this duopoly of parties that's been around for 150 years is sure to crack, for a lot of younger americans it may be hard to believe, but african-ame

and norah that was something no one would have expected in 2005 when president george w. bush put him on the supreme court and that was something that not even the conservative justices expected back in march when the court heard arguments in this case. i am told by two sources with specific knowledge of the court's deliberations that roberts initially sided with the conservatives in this case and was prepared to strike down the heart of this law, the so-called individual mandate, of course, that requires all americans to buy insurance or pay a penalty. but roberts, i'm told by my sources, changed his views decideing to instead join with the liberals. he withstood-- i'm told by my sources-- a month-long desperate campaign by the conservative justices to bring him back to the fold and that campaign was led, ironically, by justice anthony kennedy and why that's ironic is because it was justice kennedy that conservatives feared would be the one most likely to defect but their effort, of course, was unsuccessful, roberts didn't budge, the conservatives wrote that astonishing joint dissent
people in our country, as was the case under president george w. bush, that that did not create jobs, it just increased the deficit, took us to the brink of a recession, and that's not the way to go. but that's the same that the republicans are presenting now. the president is talking about growth. he's talking about fiscal responsibility. we need revenue. we need cuts. we need growth to create jobs. and i have every confidence that the president out there -- he already has made a tremendous difference. but you cannot assume that the public knows when there's this barrage of endless money. that's why i say money has to be taken out -- endless money making misrepresentations on the campaign trail. >> high drama this week with the contempt vote for the attorney general. you and others have walked out as this vote was taking place. >> yeah. >> you actually suggested there's some conspiracy among republicans because he's challenging some of the voting rights act laws around the country that they went after him on the contempt vote. what do you have as a fact? >> i don't say it's a conspi
